During last Tuesday’s meeting of the Moreno Valley City Council the council under the control of Iddo Benzeevi and his crew of political puppets took the first steps toward protecting Highland Fairview and its proposed developments from any future competing competition, this was through moving forward with an overlay zone which in Mayor Owings own words would prevent addition warehousing to be built within the specific overlay zone, thus forcing any future tenant into the pockets of Iddo Benzeevi and his Highland Fairview Development Company.
Mr. Owings in the past has been quite open on his views of NOT allowing further developments of the types of buildings Highland Fairview wishes to develop east of Redlands Blvd., in fact he once opined to a Press Enterprise that we should allow these types of buildings (warehouses) to be placed all over the city to prevent Highland Fairview from profiting (exact quote provided bellow).
Now through Mayor Owings authority as Mayor, has placed himself along with another Benzeevi yes men, Marcelo Co and Jesse Molina to the March Joint Powers Commission, this based on the tit for tat which took place between prior Mayor and now odd man out Richard Stewart showed clearly Stewart’s removal was a strategic plan to aid and assist Iddo Benzeevi once again by allowing him (Iddo) to hopefully redirect the effort of the March Life Care development into the wild blue yonder never to be seen again, thus forcing any competition for Benzeevi’s Wellness Campus out of the Moreno Valley and anyone seeking to place medical related facilities in the area into the dirty hands of Iddo Benzeevi himself.
Quote of Tom Owings as posted in the Press Enterprise article; “Traffic, residents’ complaints and lack of tenant cited as problematic.” May 13th, 2011.
“The question becomes, ‘Do you want to have a proliferation of these types of buildings throughout the City in order to prevent HF from benefiting?”
